  1. Re: iPad app for storing and playing backing tracks through sound system

    If an Aebersold that I purchased as CD, I would rip it as a WAV file into Reaper (great and cheap) or even a free DAW (digital audio workstation) software and fade them so they were barely audible. ...

    Re: Pa System for Events band

    I love my QSC K12s. Not cheap but they sound great and are very powerful and EASY. I got mine at proaudiostar.com They're not the most social people, but they seem to have the best prices. The...
  4. Re: Is the Taishan Winds TSBS-680 Baritone Saxophone a good sax to own?

    Don't give up altogether. Just realize that baris are the most expensive of the main four saxes of the sax family, and to get a solid one, you and/or your parents will need to save longer.
  5. Re: Cannonball fat necks: What are they like and what are they worth?

    I have had two tenor fat necks, and I've flipped them both for $200 each, one on Ebay, the other here on SOTW. Both gave my stone series tenor a bigger sound, but there was IMO something a bit too...
  6. Re: What is a solid, low-cost option for a classical (concert band) tenor sax mouthpiece?

    Thanks for the responses folks!! I forward the URL of this thread to my friend for her consideration for purchases.
  7. What is a solid, low-cost option for a classical (concert band) tenor sax mouthpiece?

    As in cheaper than a Selmer C*

    I'm asking on behalf of a friend for her son. He needs a non-buzzy, smoother sounding piece.

    Thanks in advance!

  8. Re: Do you own and play both a low Bb and a low A bari?

    I agree with the points above that:

    1) Modern big band arrangements (e.g. Gordon Goodwin) and even semi-modern (Stan Kenton/Hank Levy) call for the Low A a LOT.
    2) Dropping out to let the bass...
  9. Re: Cannonball Sop, sight unseen. What would be a good price for this?

    Agree. $750 a good price if it's a Global Series. I had a Global Series tenor for years that was great, but Stone Series and Vintage on average sound a bit fatter, in my experience based on playing...
  10. Re: Thinking of trading my Selmer Ref 36 Tenor in for a Cannonball. Am I crazy?

    Stop making sense. One of the coldest, bluntest, but REAL posts I've ever read on SOTW was someone declaring he thinks of his saxophone as a TOOL. IMO he's right. A sax is a gadget. I'm not...

    Re: FS: Barone Silver Plated Classic Tenor

    I posted back to back sound clips of the two Barone models somewhere in the Barone subforum a few years ago. Most folks seemed to like the Classic's tone better IIRC.

    Re: VITO "Duke" Beaugnier Baritone Sax Low Bb

    I bought one of these from an Ebay listing two months ago, it had a stunning relaq job, and it had a great sound, but played so horribly out of tune with itself from one note to the next, even my...

  15. "Careless Whisper" gets the Dave Koz comic treatment

    Here:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVXziMFEqX0#

    Funny! The first couple minutes of retro bouncy style groove illustrates why I don't listen to much pre-WWII jazz, but then they take off in a...
  16. Re: Anyone have a decent arrangment of Swing Low Sweet Chariot for Sax and Piano acc.?

    I programmed a medley of spirituals as backing tracks in a smooth jazz style (about a 10 mb MP3 file) using Band-in-a-box that starts witih that song, where I also prepared a sheet music chart using...
  17. Re: How much money should I pay for a new cannonball Vintage series tenor?

    It's always a great day when someone takes home a solid sax that sounds and feels great to him or her, no matter the brand. Enjoy, and don't look back!
  18. Re: How much money should I pay for a new cannonball Vintage series tenor?

    To the OP-

    I play a CB vintage tenor as my main axe. I agree with all the above, that:

    $2600 is more like a good deal if you MUST buy new.

    You're better off paying about half that used.

  20. Re: Thinking of trading my Selmer Ref 36 Tenor in for a Cannonball. Am I crazy?

    I bought a Ref 36 in mint condition on Ebay for a decent price because people on this forum said it's the bomb. Nice tenor to be sure, but I love the tone and action of my Cannonball Vintage better,...
